Painting of George Benson by Clive Hilton

Another legend I painted at a time when I was exploring a range of musical themes. Beyond creating a straight representation, at the timeI was using a reduced palette of four colours; cadmium red, ultramarine blue, cadmium yellow and titanium white, which I settled on to see how far I could push their creative potential. While this and other paintings I did at the same time are blue themed, others I did do not necessarily reflect the blue tones seen here.
